The ceiling ele ment I6 of the bag I1 is mounted onto the frame that the interior of the bag is entirely visible and freely accessible. 10 (01. 2064-7) Another object hereof is to provide a novel and improved depending clothing bag made of fabric, which shall have the attributes as are substan tially afforded by boxes or wardrobes made of rigid material, that is its interior is wholly and 15 ‘freely accessible when its closure component is moved to open position, and its shape remains un distorted. A further object of this invention is to provide a novel depending garment bag or box made of fabric, of improved construction, having a mem 20 ber which serves as a dust shield when the bag is closed, and as a hold-down for coat hangers or other articles when the bag is open. Another object hereof, is to provide a garment bag or box of improved construction which is 25 cheap to manufacture, which can be compactly folded when not in use, and which affords the convenience of a rigid wardrobe. Other objects will become manifest as this dis 3 O closure proceeds.

A waved wire element 25, which spans the adapted to have hung thereon coat hangers carry ing garments. At the mid-point of said element 25, is rotatably mounted the tubular element 26, which has no motion longitudinally with respect M O to the element 25, and there radially extends from said element 26, a hook 21 which is adapted to extend upwardly exterior the ceiling of the box I‘! through an eyelet 28. Such hook serves to suspend the entire structure, and may be swung to lie as at 21, when the whole structure is to be folded compactly. At the free end of the door I8, is a flap 2!! pro vided with a series of snaps 30, or other suitable means for engagement with their counter-parts 30 2|.
